Goals: This course examines ethical issues related to “third world” or “developing” nations.

Content: After a week of study on campus, we will travel to rural Jamaica on an Operation Classroom work team, living and working with locals on a school construction project. Students will study and directly experience ethical issues connected to development, combining service learning with academic reflection. We return to campus for the last week of the term to complete independent research, writing, and presentation of work.

Taught: Alternate years, winter term.
